5 Low Carb Holiday Cocktail Recipes | Atkins

Instead of a hectic schedule of holiday traveling or parties, you might be spending more cozy nights at home. In this case, ‘tis the season for a low carb holiday cocktail to add festive flair to family game night or a more intimate holiday meal.

 A general rule of thumb when it comes to counting carbs and cocktails is that if you’re past Phase 1 of Atkins 20® (or doing Atkins 40® or Atkins 100™), stick with a glass or two at the most of wine, spirits or a low carb holiday cocktail. If you’re doing a mixed drink, go with club soda as a mixer or anything else that doesn’t contain sugar. And be sure to stay hydrated; dehydration is a culprit for many holiday hangovers, so alternate each drink with a glass of water or club soda. 

If you’re ready to master the art of at-home mixology, take your pick from these low carb holiday cocktail recipes. Cheers!
